Verdict in arms case against Papia, husband on Oct 12
A Dhaka court is set to deliver a verdict in the illegal arms case against Shamima Noor Papia, an expelled leader of Jubo Mahila League, and her husband Mofizur Rahman, alias Sumon Chowdhury, on Oct 12.
Judge KM Imrul Kayes of Dhaka Metropolitan Special Tribunal-1 fixed the date after hearing the closing arguments of the state and the defendants on Sunday.
The couple are facing charges in four cases but the arms case is the first to reach the final stage of trial proceedings.
The RAB arrested Papia, her husband and their two associates, Sabbir Khandaker and Sheikh Tayeba Noor, and seized passports and counterfeit notes found on them at Shahjalal International Airport on Feb 22.
